    Chickens on the Patio - Am I Crazy?

    We currently have our hen house and run about 10 ft. from our deck and patio. It is not a problem until it rains and the sand on the run bottom gets wet...AND IT IS VERY STINKY. That is my only issue with having it so close to the house. On a hot day with damp sand the flies and smell is not...

Right now we have a brown tarp we will use for rain that covers 3/4 of the run but leaves a couple feet exposed to sun. Trust me I think just a square...

    We decided in December we would give a couple of chickens and a few bees a try. I must confess this has been a lot more work than we initally thought it might be....but fun. There was always just one more thing to do. We live in the country but in a large subdivision so I still had to be...

    Who uses their chicken compost?

    So what exactly do you put in the compost? Wood shavings, poo, grass, food????? I would like to start one once the chicks get out into the coop in a couple of weeks but we were not sure what should go into it for the garden.

    Pressure treated lumber in coop

    Our run is pressure treated wood and I think most of the folks here have also used it outside in the run area....not advised for the inside of the coop though unless it is covered with wall board of some kind.....The stain will be OK should be just fine.

    sudden death in 6 chicks(2 weeks old)

    What kind of heat lamp are you using...several folks here lost their birds to their red heat lamp bulbs being shatterproof. That kind lets off toxic fumes. Several posts on here about that so you can easily look up to see if that could be your sorry about your chicks.
